LEDs or Light-Emitting Diodes work differently to other bulbs. Instead of using a filament (like old-fashioned bulbs) or a gas (like typical energy-saving bulbs, or CFLs), they contain microchips that produce light when an electrical current passes through. This is what makes them the most energy-efficient lighting option available today.
WHY LEDs? LEDs are quickly becoming THE lighting choice for UK homes because theyre:
Top quality: LEDs produce the highest levels of light quality and give out all their light instantly at the flick of a switch (unlike other energy-saving bulbs, which take time to warm up)
Versatile & stylish: LEDs can be used with any typical light fitting and are available in all variants, so its easy to switch on the style in any room
Super efficient: Unlike traditional bulbs, which lose most of their energy through heat, LEDs are extremely efficient using up to 90%1 less energy
Long lasting: LEDs last around 25 times longer2 than standard bulbs, making boring bulb changing virtually a thing of the past!
Eco friendly: By switching to LEDs, not only will you make staggering savings, youll also cut your energy use and carbon footprint

TASK LIGHTING: assists with close-up work (e.g. cooking, reading)
DECORATIVE LIGHTING: adds the perfect finishing touches
Lighting is a vital tool when it comes to adding style, ambience and functionality to your home, and theres never been a greater choice available.
Get the look!Whether youre improving or moving, renting or owning, a traditionalist or a fan of all things modern theres an LED lighting solution for you.
LEDs come in all shapes & sizes from typical bulbs and spots, to strip lights, exterior lights and decorative ranges. They also come in a variety of colours, from cool white to warm white, daylight or even multi-coloured mood lighting.

5 ABOUT LEDS
THE KITCHEN is the heart of the home: a sociable space for preparing meals, relaxed dining, entertaining friends and spending time with family.
